Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has hailed the improvement of record signing Fabio Silva.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Nuno said that he feels Silva is improving rapidly after his summer arrival, now he’s getting used to his methods.

But he did also say he wants the teenager to become more clinical in front of goal.

“He is playing and he is does a lot of things well,” said Nuno of Silva. “But the thing he has to improve is that he has to be more clinical in front of goal because he is a striker.

“Fabio had very little experience and he was coming into a situation where he has joined a new team in a new country. These things require patience and time.


“The way that we build our training sessions is different from what he was used to but his progression is going faster now. I believe that he is improving fast.”

“It does not have to be to do with the cost of the player. It is about what you see in them and what you see a little bit ahead of them.”

There was plenty of pressure on Silva after his big-money move to Wolves with not much experience behind him.

And he has been somewhat thrown in at the deep end because of the injury picked up by Raul Jimenez.

Nuno is clearly happy with his progression and the next step is to become a ruthless finisher like Jimenez.
